Toolkit Addition

ToolKit: Manage Your Email Lists Like a Pro

Delphi Internet offers an easy-to-read FAQ that makes managing and finding email lists a breeze.

There's only two pages you need to look at.

The first gives, in table form, a clear set of instructions for how to subscribe to and unsubscribe from any of the 5 kinds of email lists.

By itself, this is not news. However, the table's creators have also included instructions on:

  • locating the archived messages
  • finding out who subscribes
  • temporarily stopping your subscription
  • finding help
  • finding files

The second page of note, helps you easily find email lists of interest. It's usefulness comes from the 5 databases you can search, in addition to Liszt.

Participating in email lists have several advantages:

  • You can increase your name recognition.
  • You can establish yourself as an expert.
  • You can find prospective recruits based on interests as well as resumes.
  • You can keep an eye on major goings-on in particular fields.
  • You can widen your own network.

And to do all this now, with the help of Delphi's pages, becomes manageable and painless. All you've got to add is the time and inclination.

Search Tips

Search: Take a Walk Through GeoCities

Okay. You've gone to all the Usenet groups (both I and II). You've put out crawlers 24 hours a day looking for new resumes. You're still short a few prospects. What next?


That's right. The home of 1,000,000 free homepages.

Geocities is organized by neighborhood. There are only 25 of them, so expect lots of sprawling suburbs, too. Neighborhoods are loosely organized around interest and include computers, health, education, and art. You can browse through the neighborhoods if you have hours and hours.

Or you can go directly to the forum area of a select group where you can participate in discussions and get to know your virtual prospect.. uh, neighbor.

For instance, in The Research Triangle Forum of the computer neighborhood, you'll find:

  • General Discussion
  • Meet Your Neighbors
  • Talk to your Community Leaders
  • Current RT Contests
  • Letters to the Newsletter Editor
  • Chat and Forum Etiquette
  • Community Chest
Each forum provides a place to interact with others who are interested in the theme of that neighborhood.

Each neighborhood's forums are a bit different. In Silicon Valley, for instance, there's Redmond's Round Table, geared toward discussion by computer professionals. Interestingly, that last link will point you to a company named Blessing/White International, that's trying to conduct a workplace survey. Hmmm.... what a great way to collect new names and make your presence known.

You can also do a direct search for whatever you're looking for from the front page. We tried a simple search for skills +objective +COBOL and came up with 6 resumes. Not many, but certainly a start.
